3D --June 6, 1976 Sunday Gazelle-Mail Cnarlest'on, West Virginia Bowman to Defend Hall of Fame Titles Dwight Stones Clears Bar on World Record High Jump He Leaps 7 Feet, 7 Inches in NCAA Meet at Philadelphia PHILADELPHIA ( A P ) - Dwight Stones of Long Beach State, making a promise he could keep, broke his own world high jump record with a leap of 7 feet, 7 inches Saturday at the 55th annual National Collegiate Track and Field Championships. The cocky Stones predicted he would set a world mark at the NCAAs because he felt he wouldn't reach it in the Olympic Games this summer at Montreal. But he was less cocky in talking about an injury that has been nagging him. "I was a basket case in November," the 22-year-old Stones confessed a f t e r he cleared the bar on his 64th lifetime attempt spanning a period of 35 months trying to go over 7-7. "I have an underdeveloped disc in my back and as a result my right hip falls down and forward three-quarters of an inch off," said Stones. "Besides that 1 guess it was a case of jet lag and not eating properly. I didn't even have enough energy to cook my own food. I lost 14 pounds and was sleeping 14 hours a day." Stones said a chiropractor (Dr. Lerny Perry. Jr. of Pasadena. Calif.) straightened him out. "He taught me millions of pressure points so I could alleviate the pain. He also worked on my emotional pressure points, for example getting my pulse down." The 6-foot-5 Stones said that because of the chiropractor I'm in much better shape than I've ever been. This is the first year that I've had my body together. I know I'm going to be a monster in the next couple of years." Stones said he was pleased to make good his prediction. "I know I've said that I was going to do it a lot of times before, but I didn't." recalled the handsome blond athlete. That's why I'm so pleased I was able to do it today. But I only did it because of that guy over there," and he pointed to Mike Winsor of Central Michigan. Winsor pressed Stones all the way, both clearing 7-5. before the bar was placed at the world record level. Stones made it on his first try. Winsor tried three times and missed. "When we both made 7-5 on the first try we were both actually tied, so Mike kept the pressure on." Stones said. Winsor, an unheralded jumper from the midwest, said his last attempt at 7-7 had to be the closest. "I just caught my right calf." said the freshman from Middleton, Mich. Stones predicted he would set the world mark at the NCAAs because he felt he wouldn't reach it in the Olympics at Montreal. Stones described the Olympics as a drag. Meanwhile, in team standings, Southern California, the Pac-8 champion, scored 64 points to dethrone Texas-El Paso, which finished second with 44. Tennessee was third ( 4 0 ) , followed by Washington State (34). Arizona State (31). Brigham Young (30) and Washington (28). The other prime prospect for setting a world record here was Arkansas State's Earl Bell, who last week set a pole vault world mark of 18 feet. 7'/i inches. Bell won his speciality Saturday but did not really approach his record, scaling the height 18-1'.4. which was a meet record. The old mark was 18-1, set by Bell and Dan Riplcy of San Jose State, last year at Provo, Utah. Long Beach State's Don Baird, was second at 17-7. Bell tried at 18-7 but failed. Meanwhile. Texas-El Paso's James Munyala ran away from the field in the final" 150 yards to win the 3,000 meter steeplechase and Villanova's Eamonn Coghlan took the 1,500-meter run with a strong stretch kick, both runners setting meet records and defending their titles. Munyala, the durable Kenyan, kicked away from Brigham Young's Henry Marsh and Tennessee's Ron Addison to win the steeplechase in 8:24.86. He broke the NCAA meet record of 8:28.1. set by Doug Brown of Tennessee in 1973. Marsh was timed in 8:27.8, also breaking the old record. Coghlan. who had won three straight NCAA titles and nine 1C4A crowns during his spectacular years at Villanova. burst into the lead at the top of the stretch and went on to edge Wilson Waigwa of Texas- El Paso by two yards in 3:37.1. the equivalent of a 3:54.6 mile. Waigwa, who ran last most of the race, edged Oregon's Matt Centrowitz. both running under the old m a r k . W a i g w a i n 3 : 3 7 . 2 6 a n d Centrowitz in 3:37.29. The NCAA 1.500-meter record. 3: 39.7. was held by Dave VV'o'.tle of Bowling Green. He set it in 19?2. In other events. Borys C h a m b u l of Washington took the discus with a throw of 202 feet 3 inches, and Phil Olsen of Tennessee, a Canadian bronze medal winner in the Pan American Games, captured the javelin with a mark of 273 feet. 2 inches. By Bob Dave Bowman will return to the second annual Hall of Fame Classic Saturday at Laidley Field in a repeat bid to dominate the high school boys portion of the track and field meet. Last year. Bowman swept the high school boys mile and two mile runs to become the meet's only individual double winner. "I'm really looking forward to this meet," Bowman, the "Duval Duster." said recently, despite the fact that he'll be facing stronger compeition. In contrast to last year when the high school portion of the meet was limited to West Virginians, Bowman will be running against his contemporaries from six states. Bowman nipped Jo-Jo Dean of Ceredo- Kenova in the high school boys Hall of Fame Classic mile last year and outkicked Chris Fox of Martinsburg in the two mile. This time, the high school boys mile field will include Steve Carnohan of Huntington H i g h , Bowman of Duval H i g h , Scott Haack of Handley High of Winchester, Va., Dave Eskins of Northern High of Durham. N.C.. Mai Jones of Grimsley High of Greensboro. N.C., Dean of Ceredo- Kenova High, David Wilson of DuPont High. Dave Goodricli of West High of Columbus. Ohio, Bill Posey of St. Albans High and Greg Holder of Williamsport High of Williamsport, Md. These 10 turned in times ranging from Carnohan's 4:16 to Holder's 4:25. It required Carnohan's best effort to hand Bowman his only defeat in the mile this year. Bowman ran 4:17 but succumbed to Carnohan's stretch drive in a meet at Huntington. Bowman is the West Virginia Class AA champion. Eskins the North Carolina titl- ist and Holder the Maryland Class B winner. The sleeper in the field is Posey, who toiled with distinction for the St. albans Class AAA championship team as a sub two-minute half miler and as a member of his team's two-mile relay and mile relay quartets. » » * POSEY SHOWED speed and strength in winning the State AAU mile run Friday night in Huntinglon in 4:20.7. Fretwell In the high school boys two mile run, Pennsylvania champion Gary Hofstetter of North Allegheny High of'Pittsburgh brings a 9:14 performance into the meet, as does Dan Morton of Grimsley High of Greensboro. N.C. Wayne Coffman of Handley High of Winchester. Va. at 9:17, Bowman, the undefeated West Virginia champion at 9:23, Brad Bulla of Grimsley High at 9:25. Holder at 9:33. John Frazier of St. Albans High at 9:41, Eddi? Printz of Martinsburg High at 9:45 and Cliff Taylor of St. Marys High at 9:49 also are entered. High school boys will compete in nine events, including the invitational mile relay, at the 2 p.m. meet. The meet will have 31 events and will be headlined by an invitational miracle mile of sub four-minute hot doggers. Other high school boys events on the program will be the 100 and 200-yard dashes, the 440-yard dash, the 880-yard run, the shot put and the 120-yard high hurdles. They'll all provide a yanNtick of how the best of West Virginia compares with out- of-staters. The meet will follow enshrinment of 10 members into the Hall of Fame at 10 a.m. on the State Capitol grounds.

For Second Time MORGANTOWN-One year ago West Virginia University signed b a s k e t b a l l player Jess Hutson of Uniontown. a national letter of intent. Today WVU made that announcement again. Last year when Hutson signed with the Mountaineers, he was completing his service in the Army. But when he returned home last year, the 5-11 guard decided to complete a personal commitment to attend Robert Morris College again. He had started his college education there before enlisting. Athletically. Robert Morris has been competing at the junior college level, so Hutson will be eligible to play for the Mountaineers this season. He has two years of eligibility remaining. " "Jess Is a true point guard," says WVU head coach Joedy Gardner. "He can handle the ball well, passes off well, seems to have good quickness, and can shoot it. Be- f cause of his experience on a good junior College team and hiyyears in the military. Jess comes to us as a mature student and an experienced athlete." As a sophomore at Robert Morris last year. Hutson averaged 18 points a game, connected on 57 per cent of his field goal attempts, and made 79 per cent of his free throws. He was named All-Region, All- Tournament and honorable mention All- America while also earning dean's list honors academically. He achieved a 3.3 grade point average out of a possible 4.0. HCTSON PLAYED extensively while in the Army He averaged 32 points a game at Ft. Dix. 38 points a game at Camp Darby, in Italy, and averaged 11 points with ·lit Ail-Army team.
